Coincidentally, Scott, I have an updated set on my laptop waiting for a listen. These came from Dr. Joe Webb. Would you be interested in doing the proof listening for them?

Hey all;

We listened to the complete surviving run (at least as we know it) of "Mr. Keen, Tracer of Lost Persons" a number of months back. One of our favourite shows around here. But over the course of multiple Thursday nights (Mr. Keen night around here) we were very, very frustrated to find that certain episodes were unlistenable. This, from the OTTR Certified Set, Version 4.1. In each instance, the volume starts to drop off, and then disappears completely making for unbelievable aggravating 'listening'. The sound quality of the episodes themselves seem fine, so it strikes me that it was an encoding issue.

All that preamble to ask: (1) Are there better copies out there and (2) can the set be updated so that it looks like we actually listened to it before it went out to the general public?

The episodes in question are (this is after many months, so if I get it wrong, forgive me):
1950-04-13 - The Eccentric Millionaire Murder Case
1952-04-23 - The Mother's Plea Murder Case (AFRS) (Not positive about this one — I made no note)
1950-04-27 - The Case of the Woman Who Married a Murderer
1950-05-04 - The King Cobra Murder Case
1950-05-25 - The Broken Window Murder Case

Any help would be appreciated. It's mean 5 more weeks of the kindly old investigator around here.
